Re: “Three Delights Caribbean Grill

Great food - Amos does it all himself and he clearly cares that his customers are pleased by his food. This place is hard to see from the street, but simple to find; its nondescript exterior hides a treasure inside. You are missing out if you skip this!

* Food - authentic, scratch-made, flavorful, and unique
* Value - very good value - inexpensive meals abundant, the most expensive items reflect expensive, fresh, or hard to get seafood and meat
* Service - attentive and friendly service from a one-man shop - surprisingly fast considering the quantity and variety of food!
* Ambiance - a very clean and bright diner with original photos on walls and island music in the background - non-disposable tableware for dining in
* Alcohol - no, darnit - this food is aching for a cold beer on the side - if you MUST have one, get your goodies to go.

Re: “Pikes Peak Summit House Project delayed pending fundraising

This and the children's museum both have my support!
Not the "tourist" attraction sports medicine center, an unneeded stadium, and an AFA visitor center funded by the city.

Re: “Olympic Museum construction is underway

Not at all - since a major funder is also the owner of a local paper. Gag.
At least this museum I can sort of get behind.

Us paying for an AFA visitor center is not something I've ever been in favor of. Neither is the stadium. And I've always considered it a far stretch to characterize the university's sports medicine center as a tourist attraction.

Re: “So You’re Interested in Playing Cooler Board Games: Handy Tips Before Diving In

We watch rule and review videos for great overviews of game rules - it's so much easier than one person having to read everything out loud. One of my kids is a great gamer and loves to help learn the games as a test player, too. Those two things have smoothed over teaching new games to less patient folks in our household.

For some games it's easiest if you can bribe (food or beer?) a friend who knows how to play into hanging out one night and teaching everyone.

Re: “Council has power over C4C, Bach says

Clara, How in the world does having a spouse elected to public office mean that the non-elected spouse loses a voice?
That is absurd!

Re: “Side dish: Jamaican moves in at old El Tesoro

Spice Island was very tasty - loved it. We tried a bunch of different things and liked them all. Jerk pork, brown stew jerk pork, beef patties, codfish balls, pepper shrimp, and the delicious home-made cornbread and jam, plus the sides. I'd write a review in your restaurant guide but the restaurant isn't listed yet... The staff was all very friendly. We'll go back!

Re: “

Something must have happened in the kitchen - Our late November visit was nothing like the 4 star one earlier in the year. Thy muffy was not so great, several items were gone from the menu... what happened?
